Telegram has announced a major update that bring along with it new features, among which are listed below.
Admins of groups can now also record live streams. When a live stream is happening, admins can use the record feature and save part or whole of the stream for viewing in the group after the stream has ended.
Admins can start a recording right from the Live Stream or Video Chat menu – with options to record Video and Audio or Only Audio. To record video, choose an orientation for the final video file, Portrait or Landscape. After you finish recording or end the broadcast, the file is instantly uploaded to your Saved Messages.
Users can select from eight themes, which apply to the chat for both users. The themes gradient message bubbles, have animated backgrounds, and unique background patterns. Each theme comes with a day and night version and will follow your app’s night mode settings – whether you keep it dark all day, or have your chats follow the sun.
Read Receipt in Groups
Users in small groups can now select a message you sent and see who else in the group has seen it. Telegram says it will keep this record only for seven days from when the message was sent.
When you send one of the select animated emoji in chat, you can now tap on it to initiate a full screen animation. This is then visible to you or anyone else who’s also present in chat at the moment. The animations are also accompanied by vibrations.
The update is now available where Telegram messenger is available.
